Industrial companies, such as steel mills, produce large amounts of daily waste from their manufacturing processes that is taken to landfills for disposal.
The landfill sits next to a river where possible water contamination was an issue. Runoff from the piles could contain heavy metals that are dangerous to fish, wildlife and humans.
Midwest’s Soil-Sement® is used as an alternative intermediate cover to control erosion, dust and infiltration and to eliminate the release of contaminants to the environment. Soil-Sement has been accepted by state environmental agencies as an alternative intermediate cover to the costly covering of 6” of top soil and seeding. Soil-Sement bonds to eliminate erosion, seals the surface to prevent wind-blown dust and creates a water resistant and resilient surface which prevents infiltration.
